@G19 really nice Baron! I followed their blog a few years back, but they seem to be out of business today... Can someone confirm?


Ya they did. Geoff the frame builder received an offer to work for Santa Cruz that he couldn't refuse from what I hear.

Hi Guys,
I was looking for my ever first racing bike for quite some time now.
A 1982 Peugeot PH12. This is very special, beceause it is the first bike with aerodynamik tubes and
internal cabelhousing. Peugeot made it to celebrate their 100jear jubilee. It was only made in 82.
My original bike sadely died on a VW Passat front wheel in 1990 :shock:
I found one on ebay. But it was build up like a citybike. Some original parts are missing, like the whole
brake set, the saddle, bar and stem. Whitch I knew before. From my orginal crashbike I receaved bar and stem as well as the front brake.
When I got the new(old) PH12 I striped it and build it up as fare as I could do with my parts. All the bearings are like
less then 1000km!
I`m thinking of white wall tires, white bartape. But the brakes should be CLB Professional`s, whitch are rare...
What do you think?

I love the internal cable routing for the downtube shifters. folks pay big bucks for aero features like that nowadays.
